You know what's better than catching 'em all?
Painting 'em all.
Lunumbra, an artist based in Kentucky, has been steadily building a large Facebook following with her eye-catching series of painted Pokémon cards.
Look, here's a before and after of Lapras:

Lunumbra is steadily working her way through as many different Pokémon as she can (she currently has around half of Gen 1 completed on her website).
At the time of writing, her Facebook page, Lunumbra's Awesome Painted Cards, has over 86,000 likes. Her pinned post explains that she's currently closed to commissions due to "the recent surge in newcomers".
Looking at her work on Facebook and Instagram, it's not hard to see why it's taken off.

Finally, here's a sped up video that shows how Lunumbra goes about painting the cards.
So damn impressive.
